The Kama Sutra of Vatsayana
The Classic Hindu Treatise on Love and Social Conduct
Paperback ISBN: 014019360x
The 1964 publication of Sir Richard Burton's translation marked the first wide appearance in English of the Kama Sutra and was celebrated as a literary event of highest importance. As vital to an understanding of ancient Indian civilization as the works of Plato and Aristotle are to the West, the Kama Sutra has endured for 1,700 years as an indisputable classic of world literature. Written with frankness and unassuming candor, the Kama Sutra remains one of the most readable and enjoyable of all the classics of antiquity. A work of philosophy, psychology, sociology, Hindu dogma, scientific inquiry, and sexology, the Kama Sutra's importance is so great that it has at the same time both affected Indian civilization and remained an indispensable key to understanding it.

Thich Nhat Hanh
The Joy of Full Consciousness
Paperback ISBN: 1556434200
In 1999 two French journalists spent time with Buddhist Zen master and Vietnamese monk Thich Nhat Hanh at Plum Village, the religious community he founded in southwestern France. This account of their experience shows what daily life is like in this celebrated community and provides a glimpse of the personality and teachings of the revered teacher. Thich Nhat Hanh has brought an awareness of Buddhism and his own brand of Vietnamese Zen to Europe, England, and the United States. Famous in the U.S. for his lectures and books, he is particularly admired for his early political activism on the part of the Vietnamese and his Buddhist teachings on forgiveness.
